Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2017

The focus on social justice and multiculturalism is woven throughout the program. The learning is experiential and the faculty are all practicing in the field. It does not feel academically rigorous but I'm not sure it's meant to. I feel like it will give me a solid general base in counseling but will require additional training to hone in on theory specific skills.

Degree: Forensic Psychology
Graduation Year: 2017

One of the Pros of my program are that we are training like an athlete does, by practicing. We don't just sit in a classroom we actually go out into the field and work on our skills. Our willingness to work toward social justice really makes us advocates for underrepresented groups.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

The core faculty are so accessible and willing to help. The classes are a very reasonable size so I get to know my teachers and can get individual attention if I need it. The courses encapsulate what I will need out in the field and are challenging me at an appropriate graduate level. The art therapy program is small, but I have already had many opportunities to meet alumni who are working in the field. The campus is small, but what it lacks in physical space it makes up for in services-the computer lab and library are equipped to meet students needs. Located in the middle of downtown Chicago, the campus is surrounded by the bustling "Second City" and all it has to offer.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of my graduate program are the core faculty members are very dedicated to their students and work hard to make sure everything is in order. The administration at Adler, however, is quite different: many of them become easily frustrated, make decisions that do not help students to succeed, and do not have enough network availability for all enrolled students to achieve education requirements (especially for practicums/internships). Schedules are somewhat flexible, but the programs are small enough that only one or two sections of classes are available during one semester and potentially not available again until the following year.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

I am currently working on my masters at the Adler School of Professional Psychology and I have overall had a great experience. All of their faculty and support staff are well trained and professional. I feel honored to have earned my degree from such a core professional psychology school.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

Overall I absolutely love my decision to study clinical mental health counseling at the Adler School of Professional Psychology. The professors have been amazing and super understanding of my need to travel home due to a death in the family, and they also were understanding of my need to miss class when I developed mono. The professors were very accommodating to my needs last semester and I appreciated every single one of them for assisting me to complete work from home. I have also had a few struggles with Adler. For example, I was trying my best to figure out how to get the school my Spring 2015 tuition from Canada, and I tried to keep student services in the loop because I knew it would be late. They did not seem to care and ended up charging me a late fee which was an absurd amount of extra money. This was infuriating considering I am already going into debt to attend this school. Student services needs to be more accommodating of international students. Otherwise, it's a wonderful school.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2019

As an International Student, there aren't a ton of funding opportunities available. Otherwise, my first impression of the school (I only started this semester) has been positive. Great environment and friendly/helpful profs/peers.
